As the digital world continues to expand, the question of sustainability in software development becomes increasingly critical. The Green Coding Summit's Position Paper offers a look into addressing the environmental impacts of software and proposing a path forward towards more sustainable practices.
In this paper, the SDIA Green Coding Summit identifies key challenges in the field, such as the lack of transparency in software's environmental costs and the urgent need for standardized definitions and measurements in green software development. The paper defines what constitutes "Green Software," emphasizing its importance as resource-efficient, environmentally friendly, and transparent.
The position paper outlines a comprehensive approach to accelerate Green Software in Europe. It not only highlights problems but also suggests actionable solutions across various disciplines including Green Coding, Green Requirements Engineering, and Green Operations. The paper goes beyond the common focus on carbon emissions, advocating for a holistic view of environmental impacts throughout the software life cycle.
